Collaborative Practice

The course explores the potential of collaborative practice. You will experiment with approaches to collaboration, challenging traditional disciplinary boundaries, subjectivities, roles and hierarchies. You will develop a personal line of enquiry that will be negotiated and applied through a collaborative project. Collaborations may involve communities, collectives, pedagogies, networks, environments, ethics, public arts, cultural activism, anthropology, sustainability, politically or socially engaged practices and more. Students come from a range of disciplines and share a commitment to the exchange of ideas in a creative forum as a powerful way to learn. You will be supported in the articulation of your ideas, development of working methods and the realisation of personal projects through a regular taught seminar series, individual and group tutorials, visits and guest speakers.

Entry requirements

You will normally have an undergraduate UK Honours degree or international equivalent or a degree-equivalent postgraduate diploma or a professional qualification. Alternatively, you may be admitted if you can demonstrate appropriate knowledge and skills at Honours degree standard. In addition, you also need to submit a digital portfolio.
